  • Posted in thread: Gelatin and dry hopping. Loss of flavor/aroma? on 07-31-2015 at 12:41 AM
    I do this often and it has never ruined an IPA. I wouldn't worry about it, especially
    considering how heavy handed you are with the dry hopping. You might lose a little aroma, but
    not much. I always f...

  • Posted in thread: Pumpkin Ale Additions - Timing on 08-13-2014 at 11:29 PM
    I mash with pumpkin as well, and although it doesn't contribute to the gravity, I find that it
    provides some mouth feel to the final product. I don't care about getting flavor from the
    pumpkin itself ...

  • Posted in thread: Grassy Taste - Saaz Hops? on 08-13-2014 at 11:24 PM
    Saaz do have a light grassy aroma and taste to them. There's certainly the possibility that
    they are causing this. At the same time however high fermentation temps can give you all sorts
    of off flavor...

  • Posted in thread: Are glass carboys really better than buckets??? on 11-14-2013 at 12:31 AM
    I prefer glass because I like to be able to observe what's happening without exposing my beer
    to o2, the ease of sanitizing, and longevity factors. Plus call me crazy but I like to avoid
    plastic as mu...

  • Posted in thread: Does US05 give off peach esters at high temps or low? on 10-27-2013 at 01:23 PM
    I have used 05 many times and for me, I would get the peach from it when fermenting in the low
    60s. It wasn't necessarily a bad flavor, but it did seem to take over the beer. I find 05 to be
    at its cl...

    Before bed, drink half of a bottle of pedialyte. Drink the other half in the morning after
    waking up. Then, go on a 3 mile run. Water afterwards, and likely a Bloody Mary some time that
    day. I've fine...

  • Posted in thread: whats going on here this is a ipa? wild? mold? on 09-30-2013 at 01:01 PM
    Hard to tell from the picture if it's mold or some kinda wild yeast, like eastoak said. I'd let
    it roll for a little til you can figure it out. My guess would be wild yeast from the hops, but
    if it's ...

  • Posted in thread: No chocolate taste? on 09-26-2013 at 12:13 PM
    There could be several possibilities as far as I can see, the biggest being that the beer is
    incredibly young for a stout (or for any beer if it isn't carbed yet). There will be major
    changes once it'...

  • Posted in thread: Clarity in Question on 09-26-2013 at 01:29 AM
    I now clear nearly all of my beers with gelatin, and I've noticed that they have a much cleaner
    character to them than before. It might be in my head, but I'm gonna roll with it regardless.

  • Posted in thread: Citra Simcoe Pale Ale pointers on 09-05-2013 at 01:06 PM
    I'm a little mystified at some of the advise here. First of all the OP wants to make a pale ale
    with a strong malt back bone. This alone should drive off all of the suggestions to take out
    most of the...
